Tabac, La Conspiration

Cette coproduction France-Canada explore les coulisses de la puissante industrie du tabac qui étend son influence économique tentaculaire au détriment de la santé publique depuis plus d’un demi-siècle. Enquête percutante sur trois continents, le film de Nadia Collot démonte les mécanismes d’une vaste conspiration mise en place par une industrie aux agissements criminels qui n’hésite pas à cultiver corruption et manipulation pour conquérir de nouvelles parts de marché. Face au cartel de la nicotine, les groupes anti-tabac s’organisent et marquent des points, mais la bataille reste impitoyable. Multipliant les points de vue, les images et les témoignages chocs, Tabac, la conspiration cerne avec rigueur les enjeux d’une situation complexe où l’arrogance des intérêts privés s’oppose au bien commun. Un documentaire éclairant et indispensable qui a la force de frappe d’un virulent pamphlet. http://www.onf-nfb.gc.ca Youtube

Fractals – Hunting the Hidden Dimension

Mysteriously beautiful fractals are shaking up the world of mathematics and deepening our understanding of nature.

A fractal is “a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole,” a property called self-similarity.

Fractals: they’re famously found in nature and artists have created some incredible renderings as well. Fractals are purely a wonder — too irregular for Euclidean geometry; iterative and recursive and seemingly infinite. They turn up in food and germs, plants and animals, mountains and water and sky.
